wouldn't they? this is a project that provides energy to our country when we very much need it. it's a project that will provide jobs, tens of thousands of jobs. we have 7.9% unemployment. we have 12 million people out of work. here's a project that won't cost the federal government one single penny but it creates tens of thousands of high-quality private-sector jobs. it's about economic growth. this is a $7.9 billion project. the project over its life will create hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenue for state and local government as well as the federal government to help with our deficit and our debt without raising taxes. more tax revenue without raising taxes. and it's also about our energy security, energy security for america. instead of bringing in oil from the middle east, this is about working with our closest friend and ally, canada, to meet our energy needs. this pipeline will not only bring in canadian oil, however, it will also -- it also moves oil from my state of north dakota and from the state of montana to our refineries in places like texas and louisiana
, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the

. and that member this evening is the departing energy secretary steven chu. so if the worst happens prepare for president steven chu. wolf blitzer, already saying that he welcomes president chu. >> steven chu, the energy secretary, the designated hitter god forbid in case of emergency. this will be one of theirs last official acts including, of course, the defense secretary leon panetta. momentarily we'll hear paul irving, the house sergeant at arms announce that the president of the united states is coming in with those very famous words, mr. speaker, the president of the united states. then the president will walk in. you see members of the cabinet walking in including dennis mcdonough, the new white house chief of staff, at the top of the screen. he's designated as a member of the cabinet, the white house chief of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrat

( applause ) >> woodruff: so at nine minutes after 9:00 eastern time, president obama makes his way in. the official plan had been for him to come in a minute or two after. but i guess he has a prerogative of being a few minutes later than what we were told. >> he just can't stop himself. he jus
and is expected to discuss investment in infrastructure and clean energy, all ostensibly without increasing the nation's deficit. beginning the republican response tonight as well from marco rubio. john, a lot of discussion tonight about the tone. the dow is at a fresh five-year high but a couple of wild cards in the form of north korea, foreign policy, a standoff in california tonight, the gun debate. >> the gun debate is one that's thrust itself into the nation's attention span, and the president's agenda, and this is going to only encourage that, but really the tone everybody is looking for is his tone vis-a-vis republicans. the inaugural, he had his elbows out a little bit. he was very newly confident just coming off that re-election. people will be watching to see how aggressive and confrontational he will be with them on the deficit, on the investment proposals he's going to make tonight which are modest but, nonetheless, are there. and on immigration, which is one way republicans are coming his way. >> larry kudlow, tonight you talked about the line between being assertive and confid
on "the willis report" less than 48 hours for president obama's bush for spending a great energy democrats unveil a new carbon tax. also, a growing problem hurting our nation's children. public-school teachers constantly calling in sick and you are paying for it. and the new american airlines. will it mean more fees and higher fares? we are on the case tonight on "the willis report." ♪ we will have all that and more coming up, but first, risky federal programs. by that i mean a new report by the government accountability of this unveiling the 30 federal programs and operations that3 have the highest risk for race, fraud and abuse, six of which have been the lowest ever since it was first released in 1990. with more on this demand editorial board member of the wall street journal. my question was, only 30? >> that's right. this is only the latest lesson. if you go over the reports from the last ten years are so you're going to find literally hundreds of programs that have been on the watch. by the way, i go back to the early 1980's when you have the famous reports of the regular administr
, energy, and manufacturing, which will help the middle class. i think progressives are hoping he will put forward policies in line with his inaugural vision -- progressive, aggressive, and inspirational. that is what they are hoping to hear tonight. how host: about the selection of marco roby roma -- hamas host: -- host: how about the selection of marco rubio? guest: he has only been in the senate a couple of years. republicans are also looking past mitt romney's defeat. they are looking forward to someone who will deliver an address in both english and spanish. the republicans are losing hispanics, young voters, and women. rubio only has tea party appeal, but mass appeal. that is why his speech is so important, what he represents about the party's future. host: the tea party is also being represented in a separate response by senator rand paul. what does that suggest about the tea party influence in washington, and who speaks for them? guest: a great question. unlike a lot of things in the republican party right now, a lot of disarray, a lot of confusion. rimpau and marco rubio are not n

[ applause ] yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms. otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children. and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the wealthiest and the most powerful. we won't grow the middle class simply by shi
through a list of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just want to underline the emotional apex of the evening was undoubtedly the "deserve a vote" chant that the president led when he spoke on gun control and the need, making the argument that our police departments were outgunned by those with assault weapons with criminal intent. and i thought that a speech that quite fr

's energy secretary steven chu. this person is known as the designated survivor, if you can believe it. a term of distinction. savannah guthrie, let's talk about the atmospherics in the hall, what we can see, and what will be off camera. >> we touched on it already. the atmosphere in terms of the bitterness and the divided nature of our government right now. if you talk to republicans and democrats, the view you get of the other party is just so stark. as far as the speaker and republicans are concerned, the president emboldened, confrontational, wants to obliterate the party. on the side of the white house, aides think the republican party is fractured, weak, vulnerable, unable to govern itself and unable to make deals to solve the big problem and you've alluded to it, an incredible emotional weight inside this hall tonight, because of the many, many victims of gun violence there. a coordinated campaign by one congressman to have multiple victims of gun violence sitting there in the hall. you see them with green ribbons, and issue the president has not brought up in any state of the u

decision for the president. does he side with energy independence? >> this certainly should not be a tough decision. this really is close to a no-brainer. he talked about it over and over again in his state of the union speech. he always talks about union jobs. this is infrastructure. this is union jobs. the great thing about it if it does not cost a penny to the taxpayers because it is all privately financed. even if you agree with the promise that global warming is a big problem and this oil will contribute, you know what, if it is not consumed here, it will be consumed somewhere else. it is not like it will go away. i do not think that the environmentalists have really thought this through. i just think they do not want it. dagen: this oil will go to china. it will be refined there with much looser environmental standards on refineries in that nation. not to make fun of our northern neighbors, but do you really want to make this country mad? canada has made it clear that it could retaliate against the u.s. do we need to be worried about this? >> that is a great question. they are part o
care, high energy race. is that the kind of government we want to buy a? is that the government we want to put our money and? i don't think so. we've got to step back and responsibly address those. do we believe there's appropriate things for government to spend money on? absolutely. i didn't support the stimulus package of 2009 because i thought it would do what he did, which is a solo bunch of money and not get remarkable results for our economy. in fact come in at her harmed her ability to come out of the recession. one of the things they could have done had it been spent and a different way would have been to revitalize the infrastructure of our country. water, sewer, rose, huge investments. but a fraction is used for something resulting in the public goods. so there are things government ought to spend money on an infrastructure is one of them. >> david morgan with readers. i would like to know if you expect the north korean nuclear test to accelerate efforts to get a deal done on the sequester.

[applause] and that has to start at the earliest possible age. you know, study after study shows that the sooner a child begins learning, the better he or she does down the road. but today fewer than three in 10 four-year-olds are enrolled in a high quality preschool program. most middle-class parents cannot afford a few hundred bucks a week for a private preschool. and for poor kids, who need help the most, this lack of access to preschool education can shatter them for the rest of their lives. so tonight i propose working with states to make high-quality preschool available to every single child in america.
